Heinrich Red 2012

Heinrich Red 750ml 2012   
Sku: 1908301

3 day lead-time required to confirm availability Why?

RED is an approachable, pleasure-giving table wine produced from 60% Blaufrankisch, 30% Zweigelt, and 10% St. Laurent aged for 12 months in a combination of barriques and large French and Slavonian oak casks. We suggest serving it slightly chilled in the warm summer months though it is delicious year-round at the table. RED is produced in several different formats in Europe, hence the description on the front label of ”regular bottle.” A drinker!

Tasting notes
This highly approachable RED is purely harmonious. The composition of its blend reflects the most important grape varieties in the vineyards: Zweigelt, Blaufrankisch and St. Laurent. Purple colour, cherry nose and hints of floral and spice characters, this RED offers lots a black and red cherry notes on the palate, a refreshing acidity and well managed, round tannins.

Other text
Early vintages were powerful and boldly tannic, aged primarily in new barriques, however, over the past decade the intensity of vineyard work has become more critical to the development of the wines. Hence, use of new barrels in the cellar has become modest. The new, ultra-modern winery, completed in 2002, provides the freedom of space and the tools to ensure that the fruit is translated into wines that are powerful, yet without hard edges - complex, yet delicate. The winery is dedicated to promoting elite examples of classic varietals from the area like Zweigelt, St. Laurent and Blaufrankisch. As each year passes, the red wines of Austria become more refined and the winemakers more adept. These may still be foreign sounding to the US market; however, it is clear the quality of the wines produced here will need no special translation to be appreciated.

Food pairing
An every-day wine to be enjoyed with a good, simple meal, a picnic or cold cuts.
